North Atlantic Health Sciences Libraries, Inc., A regional chapter of the Medical Library Association


Beth Dyer

2019-2020 NAHSL Chair

Welcome to North Atlantic Health Sciences Libraries, Inc. (NAHSL) official website!

NAHSL is a regional Chapter of the Medical Library Association (MLA). However, it is not necessary to be a member of the MLA to join NAHSL, nor is it necessary to live or work in the region. We welcome anyone who has an interest in health science libraries and health information services.

We are librarians, knowledge managers, students, and other types of information professionals from hospitals, medical centers, health care systems, colleges, universities, public libraries, companies, and more, mostly in the New England states.

Our organization provides a platform for our members to communicate and share knowledge, skills and ideas, and for continuing education, networking, advocacy, collaboration, and recognition of accomplishments. We host an annual conference as well as classes, events and programs throughout the year. We are dedicated to excellence in health information services to support research and evidence-based practice in health care and policy, and well-informed consumers of health care services.

This site is your gateway to current information about our programming, resources, and tools, as well as our rich history.

On behalf of the NAHSL Executive Board, I welcome your feedback and comments, and encourage active involvement with this dynamic organization.
